Annunciation Church in Sokolniki

On this Holy Wednesday and first of May (on the Western calendar—a “holy day” of sorts for the Bolsheviks and their ilk around the world), I found an appropriate story to show the transition of Russia from its Soviet dystopia to an emerging modern Christian society. RIA Novosti published a story last month about new bells consecrated for a temple that serves Russian airmen in Sokolniki: “Russian Church Bells with Military Symbols to be Sanctified.” The bells feature both traditional Christian symbols as well as designs associated with the Airborne Troops such as jets and parachutes. It is yet another example of how Russian society is slowly Christianizing while American society is apparently content to shed the last vestiges of our religious identity and heritage. It is a crazy seesaw of modernity.
